About The Teacher

Miguel is an independent guide. He always had a special connection to nature. When he was 22 years old he decided to move from the city of Lima and begin to travel troughout South America developing his skills as a professional hiker. ​

In 2003 Miguel was introduced into the spiritual path after receiving his red warrior initiation. ​With that he received his vision from his inner-voice of his life purpose. In 2005 Miguel decided to move to the sacred valley in Cusco. Since then he has been practicing on developing his work as a mountain guide and also in his spiritual training as a medicine man.​​​

​With almost 10 years of experience, at this time Miguel manages his own tour operator agency call Allpamama treks in Pisac, Cusco where he spends most of the year working on giving the best alternatives to tourists for a non-conventional tourism.

Allpamama offers Journeys that take place in two of the main mountain ranges of Perú: Urubamba and Vilcabamba.

Traveling trough some of the most spectacular places in the Andes we'll be able to follow original ancient Inca Trails to traditional Andean villages. We specialize in selecting trails that are less travelled offering our guests a real Andes experience.

All our programs have the possibility to include the tour of the Macchu Picchu sanctuary. ​

We have special programs for those who want to experience the mystery and magic of the mountain. We will follow traditional native Huachuma(San Pedro) practices to find and activate our purpose and walk our lives in consciousness. All our treks have an option of including these healing activities in them.

      the best guide to visit this area and our own inner landscape

    Miguel has taken me on several San Pedro walks and treks in the Cusco region over the last few years, and I keep doing so because of his dependability and professional skills, not to mention is deep connection with both this land and the medicine of San Pedro. I have always felt safe both physically and non-physically when exploring this land and my own psyche and spirit under his guidance, and couldn't recommend him more warmly to anyone interested in exploring the visible and invisible realms of this region.

      Knowledgeable, safe, and fun!

    I've done many hikes in the Peruvian Andes with Miguel, including Machu Picchu, Huchuy Qosco, Lares Hot Springs, Kinsa Cocha lakes, Pachatusan, and more. He knows the mountains like the back of his hand, and he helps to challenge and inspire with his knowledge of Andean cosmology and creating beautiful walks. He has great respect for san pedro, and his ceremonies are beautiful and deep. Connecting with nature using san pedro is a lovely practice.
